Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign® is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. Invisalign® uses 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan: from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made “aligners” are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next aligner in the series until the final position is achieved. Your Great Expressions Dental Centers orthodontist can help you understand the concerns with you or your child’s teeth, and refer you to an orthodontist as needed.

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your doctor, however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your Great Expressions orthodontist.

While Invisalign® moves your teeth without the pain and anxiety metal braces can cause, some people experience temporary discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It’s also a sign that Invisalign® is working, as it moves your teeth to their final destination. This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.

No. Thanks to the removable nature of the aligners, you can eat and drink whatever you want while in treatment. In fact, you’re required to remove your aligners to eat and drink. So, unlike when undergoing traditional treatment using wires and brackets, there is no need to restrict your consumption of any of your favorite foods and snacks unless you are instructed otherwise by your doctor. Also, it is important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to reinserting your aligners to maintain fresh breath and proper hygiene.

Most doctors recommend that anyone who has completed orthodontic treatment, whether braces or Invisalign® treatment, use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back towards their initial position. Because every case is different, please speak to your Great Expressions dentist to confirm if you need post-treatment retainers, and if they are needed for both upper and lower teeth.
